    1.

    2. KM Herkes sets the bar for flawed, layered, and lovable characters From the brute wrangling mercenary who gets counseling when he needs it to the rich tinkerer who traded in brains for superpowered brawn, each character has a rich backstory and set of struggles that makes him or her feel almost as real alone as they do together In combination, verbal snipes and gentle moments capture the best moments of everyday life Herkes s characters struggle with real questions how to cope with disability, h [...]

    3. Here s a story for those of you who love adventure, military, high tech stories If you re a fan of Tom Clancy, you ll probably enjoy these books If you re a fan of Tom Clancy and a woman, you ll probably love them even because there are women in these stories who are kick ass.There are times when the characters are so smart they don t seem realistic Every one of them is very savvy and observant except, perhaps, for Tyler, but even he has some startlingly deep insight at times The further into t [...]

    5. Impressive world building, especially in creating a near future setting that establishes prior disaster without being heavy handed This is one novel set in a series of linked works, and it effectively tantalizes with just enough to invite the reader to continue learning about the Restoration and the experiences of those in the aftermath Events are well paced, offering both adrenaline charged scenarios and the opportunity to catch a breath before the next crisis Complex plotting and the drawing o [...]

    6. This is not my normal genre so it took a little time for me to get into it, but once I did I was hooked I enjoyed the characters and cared what happened to them, something that s very important to me when I read I m looking forward to revisiting with Justin who reminds me strongly of Richard Branson , Alison, Carl, Parker, and Tyler in KM s other books Recommended to those who enjoy a good thriller.

    7. Controlled Descent reminded me of well, nothing Why Because it s like nothing I ve ever read before It s unique, different, and creates a world that s based in reality but is unreal It takes place in a future that is entirely possible probable even Humans behave the way we expect them to behave, yet they excel beyond They survive and thrive even in their darkest moments You find yourself riveted to the pages, watching as these rich, thick and colorful characters break and bend and bounce back Ea [...]

    8. I enjoyed this book from the beginning the characters are well crafted, relatable, and logical Their decisions and actions made sense with their development, and I never found myself questioning their authenticity as a result which is usually a deal breaker on a book for this reader I especially appreciated how the author took the time investing in the individual characters before they interacted, which only added to the richness of their storylines So, character development, A.The prose was qui [...]

    9. As someone who has pretty much read only one genre, maybe two, this book was refreshing I loved it and just couldn t put my Kindle down The characters, the world, everything was so well written you forgot that you were reading a book Even though there really wasn t a time period mentioned, you could tell that the story was well researched I love how Alison and Nicole are like sisters, as well as co workers They re witty, smart and funny The men even so Parker and Carl sound absolutely dreamy A [...]

    10. Controlled Descent by K.M Herkes has a little bit of everything, from science fiction to romance to mystery, all woven seamlessly together to create an excellent read that is hard to put down Each character is well developed, and several of the characters have intriguing special abilities The plot is full of action and intrigue, but it s the characters that make the story the wonderful read that it is All of the characters are flawed, some of them quite seriously The characters are easy to ident [...]

    11. This is the third book set in a world struggling to rebuild after a disaster That being said it is very much a stand alone story and you do not need to read any of the other books that are set in this world to understand everything that happens in this book Of course the book is finely crafted and you are most likely going to have the same response I had upon finishing, namely MORE This particular story I would frame as a conspiracy thriller, the main characters are trying their best to survive [...]

    12. This book was wonderfully creative I adore most of the characters, their growth, the story behind it, and the fact that it was left open for much to come Parker and Carl are awesome I fell in love with the character interactions in Turning the Work, and now that I read this one which I believe comes before Turning the Work it makes a lot sense now Keep it up K.M Herkes, keep being awesome

    13. This would have been enjoyable if I d read it straight through, but life kept getting in the way I had to reread parts to remember what was going on Still, fun I d be interested in learning about the Restoration world, but information is probably available only as kindle books Grrr Read this.

    14. Really enjoyed this character driven, action packed debut by K.M Herkes Characterization is a real strength with this author, and I m looking forward to reading adventures about this bunch especially Carl and Parker.

    15. I had the pleasure of reading this book in two sittings Meaty and intense Great characters, great action, and excitement that builds throughout Highly recommended for anyone who loves thrillers, especially with a science fiction or military spin.

    16. Truly a Good ReadA good story with real and understandable characters I enjoyed the story immensely You will regret not picking up this book.

    17. Set in a dystopian near future, this thriller is chock full of interesting characters including one that should have been drown at birth Recommended

    18. I liked it Just enough of a alternative future to keep things interesting while still seeming familiar and possible Looking forward to rest of the series.

    19. It was a well written, fast moving novel I enjoyed the characters and was pulled in by the story Only downside for me, was the graphic violence at the end, without that, would have been 5 stars
